Join us at The Students’ Union at UWE

Here at The Students’ Union at UWE we want to make a positive impact on the lives of every student at UWE Bristol, empowering them to ‘Join In, Speak Up and be More’.

We are led by elected students, including five full-time Presidents, Part-Time Officers, Department Reps, Student Trustees and more, who all represent the 28,000 students at UWE. 

We have a diverse and vibrant student community and want to ensure that everyone has the best student experience possible. With over 140 different sports clubs and societies on offer, there are plenty of opportunities for students to get involved and try out new things. 

This is an exciting year for us as it will see the launch of our new Strategic Plan for 2018 – 2022.

Our priorities over the coming years will be to encourage an active and engaged network of students, as well as championing student welfare and support. We’ll also be working to make sure that students get value for their money across all opportunities at UWE Bristol, in addition to ensuring that the inclusive and diverse student voice is heard and acted upon.

We are looking for two committed individuals to join us as External Trustees, one with a strong background in Commercial or Trade Management and Finance and the other in Charity/Education Law. You will support our elected officers, Student Trustees and senior managers to drive the strategy and steer the work of The Students’ Union at UWE. These are voluntary roles so we are looking for dynamic, driven individuals who can help us succeed in meeting our vision.

We welcome all applicants who possess the relevant skills and expertise, however, as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people, disabled people and women are currently under-represented on out Board, we particularly welcome applications in these areas.
